    Everything in your last pic looks like melanistic ringneck to me. I have quite a few that look just like that. They will turn out something like this if they are roosters.

    The dark chicks look like green ringnecks to me.

    Here is a photo of some Black Ringnecks and domestic Green Ringnecks.

    The Blacks (Melanistic) are the BLACK babies with a yellowish white throat patch. The chick closest to the camera, and the one just to the left of it.

    The green chicks are not black but have a dark chocolate tint to them- they may or may not have any white on them. The chick standing in the far left corner is easiest to use as a comparison to the black chicks.
